Plans to redevelop Hotel Les Carterets approved
Wednesday 14th November 2012, 10:00AM GMT.
PLANS were yesterday approved to redevelop Hotel Les Carterets despite concerns about its ‘overbearing’ impact on neighbouring homes and Cobo itself.
The Environment Department’s political board narrowly passed the proposals to demolish the hotel and replace it with flats, by just a single vote at yesterday’s open planning meeting.
Environment minister Roger Domaille and board member Barry Paint both abstained from the debate and vote, due to conflicts of interest, meaning the three remaining board members voted in favour of the plans by just two votes to one.
Before the decision was made, various representatives spoke in support and against the plans for a block of 12 three-storey apartments.
Among the residents who raised a series of concerns over the impact of the plans was Hugh Bromley, who warned of the overbearing impact to properties at the rear, including his own.
